Kendra and Jonathan were ABSOLUTELY Wonderful A1 customer service is definitely what they providedThey explained every single detail in regards to the room, dining, parking, events being held at the hotel, local things to do and much more

The room was very nice It was clean, the towels were great quality compared to a lot of hotels I’ve stayed at recently, elevators were clean I also like the fact that there was a microwave on each floor to accommodate the guests that needed oneI will definitely stay at this property again in the futureMy opinion for the negative reviews I read, closed mouths don’t get fed A hotel should not receive a bad review because you didn’t speak up for them to address your issues with your stay while there There are a lot of staffing issues due to COVID and unfortunately the hotel industry is probably seeing a impact just like every other businessThanks again for wonderful stay away from home!

I’ve been traveling to this area often for work and have had a hard time finding a decent hotel in the area This Renaissance met all of my expectations Clean, quick and friendly service, updated rooms, quiet and has a nice gym

See Hugo if you go to the restaurant, he’s fantastic!The beds here are SO comfortable I slept great every night I also liked that while they don’t have a microwave in the room, they have one for guests in the grab and go areaMy only wish is that they had coffee options before 7am, as I’ve been heading out early for work I’m happy to have had a great customer service experience after what feels like far too long Will be staying here going forward when I travel here!

LAUREN CALTA

While the hotel itself was clean with an attractive lobby, the customer service was below what I would expect You must give 24 hours notice if you want your room cleaned and then I would recommend that you follow up to make sure your request is recorded I stayed Thursday through Monday and although I requested the room be cleaned twice, it was never documented in the computer and therefore never cleaned

I had to request twice for someone to come get the dirty towels from the room and getting a full set of clean towels was a chore The housekeeping staff was less than accommodating , as I had to chase down a cleaning cart to get fresh towels as the chamber maid ignored me while pushing the cart right by me Certainly not worth the money and I would not return

Albert Garcia

First time staying at this particular hotel I loved it Even though it was 12 miles away from the convention center, I didn’t mind the drive because it is a world better than the hotels right by the convention center

I loved the location Staff was very nice and eager to assist with whatever you needed Exactly what you would expect from a Marriott property I will stay there again and hopefully Plantation Walk will be open Very nice!

Minh Hua

I have stayed over 1,000 nights at a Marriott branded Hotel This Hotel is significantly below average compared to other Sheratons I stayed atLet me first start with a positives

The guy in the club lounge was super curious, responsive and wanted to help Excellent service mire commonly found in Asia or Latin America that the United States The lobby gets lots of natural light and it appears was remodeled not too long ago It’s got your standard breakfast area, a little bar and some conference rooms There’s a fountain outside and there’s plenty of parkingThe reason why I’m getting this two stars is because the rooms are just very old and kind of dirty For example, there is scum in mildew all over the bathroom Another example of the coffee table was scratched up Except for the mattress, it felt more like a old courtyard Marriott than a Sheraton The room is large as you would expect in a suite but again in bad need of updating The drapery seem like it came from the 1990s The shampoo and soap they give you is from big bottles of fixed to the shower wall There’s some hygiene risk there given I’m sure they don’t replace the whole bottle after every guestI have included photos so you can judge for yourselfThe AC unit was loud and didn’t respond to the thermostat very well I think I might have caught a head cold or something after two nights

Maggie Lou

Did a weekend staycation, this hotel is located in the heart of the upcoming area of Plantation Walk For that reason, make sure you get a parking pass because they do ticket cars There is security patrolling the area on a cart

Just a reminder parking isn’t free The staff were really nice and helpful The Sheraton Suites appears to be renovated from the outside and lobby area There are places were upgrades can occur such as the pool and hot tub area The room was nice but it has it quirks like turning the switch down to turn on the light, the noise the sink makes, the struggle opening the closet, and the movement of the refrigerator when you opened it They have a dining area where they serve breakfast, Starbucks, and a small bar Aside for a sign saying they have a breakfast buffet, if you don’t inquire about its most hush-hush There were not many people eating meals when I pass by in the morning or evening If there was a menu available in the room or during check-in, I’m sure they would have more people The hotel was reasonably priced but certain days the price fluctuates tremendously especially weekends and holidays

Shiloh Frey

A beautiful hotel, decked out in marble and blues located in one half of The Delmar Being a Marriott branded hotel, it comes equipped with the usual closets and full bath, the beds are VERY comfortable, and the kitchenette made Valentine’s day a breeze The best part was the full, floor to ceiling window on one side overlooking the pool and beyond

Room service and concierge were remarkably nice, and my baby and I have never been happier! Honestly I’ve never stayed at a better hotel, I loved it!

Stephen Knefely

First night we stayed in the Del Mar! Great experience since we booked a premium suitWent to check into the “other” hotel- the element which literally uses the same lobbyWe pre checked in, after waiting 15 minutes since the lobby has no formal check in process

We all stand in a glob in the center of the room, and walk to a desk when available When they alerted us that our room was available, we were next to the desk- and they decided to quickly check in the pilots that just walked in behind usWe get to our room, which is generally reserved for the handicapped No big dealLooking at the shower fixture, it’s not accessible for someone of normal heightWe call to speak with a front desk attendant, and express our concerns and are told to sit down and utilize the shower, and also no other rooms are available She stated she wasn’t aware of what the room looked like, invited her to see it – in which a male supervisor picked up rudely , and stated there is nothing they can doOur money was great when we booked through the Del Mar, but nothing when we utilized Expedia for the “element”

Lavender Inspiration

Very good downtown hotel with convenience to Las Olas, Riverwalk, Brightline, Science Museum etc This is NOT a beach hotel for those looking for that (I was not) The room was comfortable, clean, and well-equipped but tiny (and I supposedly had an upgraded, larger room)

There are no great views Oddly, the TV was not visible from the bed, and the balcony was uninviting The bed was miserably hard The common areas are nice Keep in mind I was there off-season so it wasn’t crowded Staff that I interacted with were pleasant

MJ Lengel

Always enjoy staying at this hotel because of the friendly people working here (front desk, bar, dining and housekeeping all) The bar and the food options are REALLY good I have stayed here a dozen times and the staff has always made it an enjoyable experience

As a professional traveler, I would appreciate better options to charge my menagerie of electronic devices while in my room There is only one plug in the lamp between the beds and that plug would no support my charger There were no options to use a USB without a charger Had to put all of my devices across the room from the comfy corner chair and the bedsThe fitness room is small but has decent amount of equipment As people try to stay healthy on the road, I encourage the management to give the fitness room attention and keep things working properly so the customers can be safe and fit Only 1 of the 3 treadmills worked properlyThese rooms get a lot of use from the large amount of customers, so some of the amenities are getting a little worn down While the facilities will benefit some minor updating and maintenance, the management seems to have hired some of the nicest people in the industryLook forward to staying with you in the near future

Trish Boccuti

Nice hotel but definitely a little worn The staff was great – very friendly But the room had a sight musty smell and just looked a little old

The location was great – very easy to get to the airport, cruise terminal, and the beachThe food at the lobby bar was also really good!

Luis Pena

Remember to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙᴏʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking a stay They compare countless hotel sites and typically will have rates a lot cheaper compared to others! Thank me later on! This resort is one of my favorites in this area

We have been here for three days so far and leaving tomorrow We have enjoyed staying here immensely Our room was so clean and we let housekeeping clean it each day

I like the fact you smell bleach in the bathroom It lets you know they actually clean it The staff here are always happy to help you except the maids They really aren’t socialable but that wasn’t anything to complain about The breakfast is very nice and very cleangood food as well This place went above and beyond my expectations We were in room 403

Savannah Sussman

I can’t give this hotel 5 stars for 2 reasons1) The water pressure in the showers 🚿 is far to weak2) There is no microwave in the rooms

I stay in same hotels, for weeks at a time, and a microwave is a definite plusThe staff in this hotel is EXEMPLARY!From the front desk to housekeeping to the person arranging 🥞 the breakfast 🥐 buffet, everyone is friendly, efficient and pleasantI’d rather drive the 30 miles to my location, than stay in a closer hotel😌

Leader1- LARRIO A. WALDEN (Captain)

Nice Friendly staff, clean room, good breakfast buffet

all you can eat But your car will get very dusty from all the construction going on next door And tree leafs falling on the windshield Otherwise, I like this property, will stay again and I do recommend this Holiday Inn Express & Suites However, they must stay steadfast, continuously striding in all categories to earn 5 Stars hotelNow, Breakfast dinning I rate 5 🌟 for cleanliness, food quality and quantity, temperature of the food and the good helpful attendant on duty therewho’s name is Trevor Very helpful and clean man

Hotel is old Bed was very uncomfortable Lumpy and too soft

Pillows were lumpy and so thin they offered no support AC wasn’t working well Room temperature was just below 80, even hallway was cooler This was one of the worst Hampton Inns I’ve stayed inStaff was friendly but poor room quality couldn’t be overcome I would not recommend

Morgan m

One of the best Hampton Inn I have stayed at Down on business, manager helped me with tweaking my last minute reservations Breakfast was better than quite a few other Hamptons I’ve stayed at

Every location will be different for sure, but cleanliness, accommodating, and flexibility wise they are doing it rightWill definitely stay here again next time I am in town

My boyfriend and I had the most amazing stay here The hotel is charming, with gorgeous decor and a warm atmosphere The location could not be beaten

I think it was worth spending a bit more to be on Los Olas Blvd and be able to walk to all the fun restaurants and shops And the pool! I loved the pool It was along the canal and was very peaceful and beautiful

Marcia Coda

Beautiful hotel right on Las Olas Blvd where there are loads of shops and restaurants Rooms are nice

Beautiful interior Location is great Across the street is the Boathouse restaurant (owned by the hotel) where you can sit by the river watching a continuous flow of boats Employees are friendly and helpful We would definitely return Can’t say enough good things

D.R S

We want to express our gratitude and appreciation for the extraordinary service we received in our December stay at the Riverside hotel DENISE, the hotel manager was overly accommodating and efficient LORI, at the front desk made us feel welcome the entire stay

We felt the hospitality from start to finish Five stars aren’t enough to rate our overall experience!

This hotel has the potential to be a nice hotel However, there are some issues that needs to be rectified During my 2 day stay my room did not have any hot water in the shower

I was told that the water only gets warm but the water didn’t even get warm It is obvious that the pool haven’t been cleaned in a very long time Plus the overall cleanliness of the hotel can be better Even though the rooms are decent and the hotel is in a good location The issues that I address tends to take away from the potential of the hotel

Ab M

Woke up and wanted to take a shower; the water was cold You can imagine how that felt They serve “breakfast”

Came down and it was a few apples, crunch bar and a few pre made ham/sausage burgers No veggie options Pool was not functioning Jacuzzi was dysfunctional Why did I pay that much money for? Would’ve been better off at Marriott or Hilton Staff was nice and respectful, that’s why the two star

Glenn Witherspoon (Spoon)

The cold water pressure varying during the day The faucet usually there no cold water, and the water is to hot to wash your hands The shower water pressure is very weak

Above the shower head, there peeling paint, you can see the green mesh tape The bathroom door get stuck The carpet is sticky, need to be steam cleaned The lobby is really nice, and they have great parking The staff are nice and professional

Josh Steffens

Rooms are large and comfortable Building is showing age however the interior has been kept nice Breakfast is great and recommended getting down there around 7am to beat the crowds

Breakfast is from 6am-9am The pool area is a nice oasis offering shade at different parts of the day There is a hot tub just off the main pool The “E Spot” bar/restaurant downstairs next to the pool area has good food however it is the friendly staff that makes this spot worth your while My only complaint with this hotel is just the location It can be quite hard to get into the location from the busy strip Hope you found this helpful, I will definitely be back!

Nick Buono

Simply said – everything was great! My family of four (10 year and 6 year old) had an amazing 4 night stay Every staff member from receptionists to bartenders to maids were very pleasant and helpful The pool was well maintained

The restaurant was perfect for a light meal The complimentary breakfast had a variety of options, and while it did get busy at times, the staff was always working hard to keep lines moving and cleaning tables off My kids loved the classic “Embassy feel” of the open atrium and glass elevators The rooms were a little outdated (namely the bathrooms – straight out of 1970 :), but everything worked fine and was clean For us to be there 5 days and not have a single issue! Highly recommend!

Wayne Bryant

Worth a 10 star, I few in at 7:30 am went to the hotel and ask to check my bags and they let me check in and I got my room Which I was thankful for Phil in the E-spot was excellent gave Great dinner choices and always provided the best service

Elizabeth also did with bring drinks pool side I will defiantly stay here again Everyone i encounter was always helpful and courteous> I cant say enough good thing about this place Just keep up the great customer service you got a good thing going Good help is hard to find keep your people in place 5 day stay

Remember to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙᴏʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking your resort This web site will compare countless booking websites and typically will have rooms a lot cheaper compared to others! You’re welcome :)! This hotel is the best rated in this area

I have been coming here for a very long time If you stay for a few days you for sure won’t be disappointedAfter a nightmare experience with an AirBnb (never again) we came to the Westin Fort Lauderdale at 3 in the morning and were greeted by one of the most excellent customer service representatives we’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting, Nicole She made our check-in effortless, quick, and ensured that our stay here would be a fantastic one We had a car rental, so the location was extremely convenient (right off the highway) and several miles away from major boulevards and beaches The hotel is excellent, clean, welcoming, the staff are great and helpful The pool is refreshing and nice (although we wish it was heated), and the grounds are fantastic The only criticism I would have is that the pillows could be a bit firmer (or at least an option) and the pool should be heated Otherwise, the hotel is highly recommended, thanks again to Nicole!

Sarah B

Please be aware that this hotel is gradually being renovated You may not get a newly renovated room, and that makes a world of differenceThe first time we stayed here, it was great! The room looked fresh and was very clean

We decided to book a second time (for longer) based on that first experience, and it’s like we’re in a different hotel entirely this time The carpet is old and there are bare footprints all over it from the previous guests — no one had vacuumed the room when we arrived It’s dirty, outdated, and smells oddly perfume-y and damp There is what looks like a blood stain on one of the pillow cases and the couch is stained and faded It’s clear that the room we were assigned to this time isn’t one of the renovated onesThe only reason we are staying tonight is that we checked in very late after a long cross country flight Despite our reservation being non-refundable we will be moving to a new hotel tomorrow Yuck! Avoid this place unless you enjoy the thrill of not knowing what you’re paying for

Our company held a conference with approximately 40 people staying at the hotel including myself Everything was amazing from the reservation process, to checking in and room accommodations We had food catered in for two events and everything was amazing

The staff at this hotel makes planning and holding an event easy I had so many other elements to handle and having Maureen Sallustio, the Director of Sales manage the event was a blessingThe general staff all were accommodating, willing to help in any way, and went above and beyond

– Thin bedding that didn’t keep us warm- Stairs inaccessible from outside- Treadmill and elliptical were old models that haven’t been maintained and didn’t work well- Our outside view was obscured by a wall- Low water pressure- Loud wall AC unit The thermostat inside wasn’t attached to anything- Relatively remote location, so more miles put on the rental car- All staff have masks hanging down below their noses- The fridge is tiny – smaller than a dorm sized one – and the back half had built up ice, so our leftovers froze- Thin walls, loud noise from halls- They do offer breakfast, but only if you pay for each item- Stains on the bedding

This is the 3rd time I returned to this hotel For the most part I am pleased to see the overall service standard remain with better staffing arrangement to handle the flux of visiting guests I am also very pleased with the housekeeping staff they were very helpful

The food at the restaurant is very good, and love the breakfast offeringThe only bummer I found was the availability of the bike rental given everyone was charged for the destination fee, there needs to be sufficient inventory

Lynnette Williams

Very nice hotel and stay Clean, fresh, great staff and amenities This hotel was located perfectly at the end of Las Olas Blvd near all the restaurants, bars and shops

Only a 5-7 min drive away from the beach It was so convenient staying here Has a nice bar lounge area and restaurant within the hotel Nice size rooms and balcony rooms has a nice view of area The price staying was definitely worth it for me Definitely will be our go-to stay hotel when visiting out here again Really felt luxurious during my birthday festivities Keep up the great work guys!! You are all appreciated!

By far the best hotel I have ever stayed at! Exceeded every expectation! Very clean (let’s say spotless), staff was AMAZING, the location was fantastic , the food was out of this world and the overall service was Top Tier Mel at the front desk was exceptional! Because of her my birthday weekend was INCREDIBLE! I would definitely recommend the Hyatt Centric to any and everyone visiting the Fort Lauderdale area! You will NOT be disappointed! Thank me later

This was a great hotel stay! We really enjoyed the beautiful 2 Queen suite which was very spacious It had huge TVs which was great for watching the NFL playoff games We enjoyed the rooftop bar and pool area, as we were here to celebrate a birthday

The front desk team were very accommodating especially Allen and Terrell Although we did not use valet service, the valet team very polite and engaging in conversation especially Rowan We’ll definitely be back!!

The whole experience was terrible I checked out early and was unable to even complete my stay there because the experience was just that horrible The hotel staff were not hospitable and not what I am accustomed to experiencing from the Marriott brand

The room smelled bad Our concerns about the smell were not adequately addressed The first night they stated they could only clean the room but they were unable to move us to a comparable room since they were at capacity for the night The next day the hotel staff said that they would need to do an assessment of the room before moving Ridiculous! They then say they still are unable to move us and offered to clean the room again, which I was not interested in then having to stay in the same room where they are spraying with tons of cleaning products, also while our luggage is still in the room The manager followed up later on that day Finally, the manager told us that they would move us to another room on the same floor The manager stated she would leave a note with the front desk staff However, the communication between the managers and the front staff was horrible Once we were packed and were ready to move to the different room the front desk staff acted as if they had no idea what we were referring to They said they had no comparable rooms available I asked to speak with the manager and they advised they already left for the night Eventually, they “magically” found us a comparable room, but it wasn’t on the same floor as they promised Actually, the new room was now on the lower third level close to the highway, where we can hear the highway traffic all night long I imagine this wouldn’t have been an issue if the hotel had double pane windows The next morning we speak to the manager of the hotel and he is condescending, ignores our concern, and makes tons of excuses instead of apologizing for the many inconveniences we experienced during our stay After that encounter, I checked out early I moved to a full service Marriott hotel in the area And the experience was night and day I received much better treatment after moving to another hotel This Courtyard location needs to ensure they are adequately cleaning their rooms, especially if they are a pet friendly hotel But most of all, they need to learn to treat their customers with respect As a Marriott Gold elite member I’ve never experienced this type of treatment and horrible customer service I would never recommend staying at this hotel

Eric Gotham

This has been a pleasant surprise  For the price, I was expecting something a little more aged but it looks brand new   Even though its new,  the staff really knows what they’re doing – all very pleasant, busy, kind, etc

  Rooms are clean and spacious with large windows and televisions  Modern lighting controls and plenty of charging ports The lobby is contemporary, yet inviting It has a convenient little “store” for snacks and drinks  The restaurant, coffee shop and bar on the lobby level are OK – kinda the only thing that’s missed the mark Dinner is far better than breakfast The food portions are small and quality is so so (it’s a hotel, I get it) The real bummer is they say it’s not part of the hotel, so you cannot charge your room for meals or drinks  Same with the roof top bar

My husband was here on business and his company booked our accommodations I have to say after reading some of the reviews I was afraid of what we were getting into but it is not a reflection of the service or hotel AT ALL The room is dated sure but so spacious, with a couch and desk and very clean

The cleaning staff were always working so hard with smiles, fresh towels and a friendly hello, they certainly deserve a raise for their hard work!! The pool area was great The location was perfect We didn’t rent a car and walked everywhere Great restaurants nearby and a Publix We used the shuttle service and the drivers were all so friendly! Breakfast was late starting a few days but there are staffing shortages everywhere and it is a free breakfast with eggs, bacon or sausage, toast, oatmeal and cereal which was perfect If we are in the area again we would definitely choose to stay here again I will say that although there are sometimes two people at the front desk they are busy on their computers so they don’t always acknowledge you right away, a look up and “I will be right with you” so they can finish up before helping would show they see me but seriously everything else was perfect

Abraham Jimenez

We only stayed here for 1 night, and we enjoyed our stay Complimentary breakfast is a plus Small pool, gym

We really enjoyed our room, spacious There were a few negatives, they only had 1 elevator in service, which made the wait longer then they should be, and it didn’t help that house keeping used the same elevator The bathroom was another negative It was so small, that’s one thing I look forward to when staying in a hotel, a big bathroom with a huge showerthis bathroom was not that If you can over look that, your stay here will be just fine If this review helped, please give me a 👍

Robin Cameron

This hotel had a clean room, comfortable bed and pillows Everything we needed to be comfortable for a few days The breakfast area was clean, and had a delicious variety of foods to choose from

The coffee was delicious and the tea choices were perfect for me The staff was very polite, friendly and helpful when needed Thanks Hyatt Place for meeting our needs

This place is nicely located off the main street It is modern and the amenities are great to have The check process was effortless that it seems unreal, the facility is very clean and there is a pleasant fragrance that welcomes you as the automatic door opens

The staffs are hospitable and polite, always greeting and acknowledging you I liked the diversity of the staffs I loved the room, especially the shower Checking out was as easy as checking in, unfortunately all great experience has to come to an end I look forward to my next stay

Michael Jackson

This had to be the WORST Marriott I have ever had the misfortune to stay atFirst, when I arrived they had no re ord of my reservation even though I showed it to them through my email Then they realized they canceled it and had to give me another room

Of course it was right next door to the elevator and the a/c was stuck on 75 I called the front desk and they sent two repairmen to my room and one said ” oh that’s they way it works If I can’t change it you need to get another room” Why say you can change it but tell me first thats the way it works???The next day I was finally able to get a room in the afternoon with a balcony which is what I requested Unfortunately I made the mistake of leaving 2 of my own pillows along with my necklace on the other room I called the front desk and of course they didn’t find it or have anything turned in The necklace I could see but pillows???My main issue with this courtyard was their lack of empathy and their poor customer service Pretty much everyone I spoke to seemed preoccupied with something else and showed no concern whatsoever I chose this courtyard over my usual one in plantation just to save $20 and it was DEFINITELY NOT WORTH IT I would suggest you not visit this one until they get better management and start to hold their staff more accountable for how they treat their customers

Very nice hotel, close to many nice eating places Rooms are nice and cleaned well They will only come in and do a lite clean up and make beds after your 3rd night

Trash can is to be put outside your door to be emptied by 2pm It’s ok,but a little pricey per night We stayed 2 nights for $336 plus $100 deposit you get back Nice breakfast in morning I guess I just expected a little more for less

Christine Detres
